Need help replacing door handles 85 CJ-7

Hi all,
I am attempting to replace the outside door handles on my 85 CJ7 hard doors. I cannot see how to get to the handle. Most of what I am reading it looks like the latch cover(black in photos) should be removable, however on my doors this cover is riveted on.

Anyone out there with experience replacing their door handles can you take a look at my pics and tell me if this cover should be riveted? If it is supposed to be removable I will drill out the rivets.
